There’s nothing better than freshly made warm flatbreads. For years I’ve been making batches of flatbreads that I could store in the fridge. My boys loved them because they could make a quick pizza or stuff them with taco meat and cheese. They can be cut into triangles and toasted for fresh pita chips that can be dipped or topped with all sorts of things. What I had in mind this time was a gyro using skirt steak. I marinated bite size pieces of steak and stir fried it in my mini wok. Chicken or pork can be substituted for the steak as well. Add some sliced onion, chopped tomato and a dollop of tzatziki sauce and you’ve got a fresh meal that tastes every bit as good as if you had gone out to a restaurant.

Nothing beats a pizza made out of homemade bread right out of the oven. I love making bread and I make it the old fashioned way, by hand. Don’t have one of those fancy stand mixers with a dough hook to knead the dough. It takes about 2 hours from start to finish to make flatbreads including the time it takes to raise the dough. I started thinking it would be fun to make individual pizzas so that everyone could top them with their favorite toppings. Before I learned to make flatbreads I would buy Pita Bread at the store. I’ve since found out they’re really easy to make, taste better and I can make up to 8 flatbreads at a time. There are many things I can do with flatbread but I’ll get into that another time. . . but for now lets get started on the Greek Pizza.
